As part of Sony’s PlayStation State of Play video event, the publisher announced what we’ve been all waiting for, and that’s The Last of Us: Part II (stylized as The Last of Us 2) release date! Mark your calendars, folks! The Last of Us Part II release date has been announced to be February 21, 2020! In addition to that, we even got new gameplay as well!
Lasting just three minutes long, the new gameplay trailer shows some rather shocking moments. So proceed at your own discretion, alright?
